Default Re: What steeler have you met?

I work at the nations 6th busiest airport...I met and talked to Franco and Dermonti Dawson.... I don't ask for autographs.... not my style...

Both were really cool and I was so excited that they treated me good... Franco asked me if I was from the "Burgh" because of my STEELERS lanyard, and watch that were hanging from my neck....

Dermonti was dragging his golf bag down the crosswalk when I noticed a golf bag drag across me that said DERMONTI DAWSON .......... I didn't recogonize him, but I knew the name........ Dermonti was very cool.... he is such a big strong guy!

My co-worker at McCarran Inlt Airport met Ben last March 2005... he said Ben was cool... AND when he asked what Ben was waiting for in the terminal.... he said Carson Palmer !!!!!!!!!!! And that they were going to a big party at the Palms Casino.....

All these QB'S are friends.... they stick together!

I've met quite a few former Steelers as I dated a Steeler in the early 90's, but I'm not going to reveal his name as I would probably be pelted with cyber tomatoes and I'd be PO'd if I had to do my hair all over again - LOL! Nicest and funniest guy you'd ever want to meet, seriously, though he wasn't viewed that way by most fans.

Most of these guys are very personable off the field and just want to be treated like average Joes, believe it or not. There are a few who don't fall under that description, of course, but I didn't find that to be the 'norm'.

As far as present Steelers go, XT and I met several at this year's kickoff luncheon at the Hilton Hotel, but the most memorable moment at that event was running into Mr. Rooney in the vestibule and personally shaking his hand, seeing that lovely smile of his and thanking him for all he has done for us Steelers fans!

Meeting Mr. Rooney was like meeting my Grandfather.... I could only imagine....I hope Mr. Rooney crosses paths with me sometime... He strikes me as a real person...

He is, NV, and XT and I both remarked how we could feel his warmth in his handshake. Very gracious (and classy) man.

It probably did change his outlook but this is after the accident

Well I have met over 400. I am a avid auto collector, worked shows and got to spend cool time with alot of them, Truthfully there just regular guys when off the field. I mostly enjoy talking with the older guys, the way football used to be. I even beat Bill Dudley in a game of pool. GO STEELERS!
